Are you looking for ways to make your home smarter this year? While organization can go a long way towards making your home more livable, smart-home features can help too. Let’s look at a few options for making your home smarter this year.

Make your home smarter

Lighting

Use “smart lighting” to add motion-based security lights to your entrances and backyard areas. Many of these systems have lights that can be used individually, but that also have an app. With the app you can set up “zones,” timers, and even connect the lights to your security system. That way you can program everything to come on at the same time, whether you’re home or on vacation.

Video Doorbell

A video doorbell like “Ring” is a great way to get started with “smart home” options. This allows you to see whatever is happening outside your door, from packages being dropped off to solicitors or burglars.

Appliances

Smart appliances make life so much easier, don’t they? From Robot Vacuums to Smart Refrigerators, you can save time and energy. Have your fridge share the weather and headlines of the day as you drink coffee that was brewed by the time you woke up! Let the robot vacuum handle the daily task of sweeping up dog hair.   There are so many benefits to smart homes!

Thermostats

And finally, a smart thermostat can really change your home heating and cooling routine. Some of these smart thermostats can even program themselves by learning your preferences and then creating a personalized schedule!

There are so many options for “smart home” improvements these days. For more information on a variety of smart home ideas, click here.
